The chapel, which is a body of community newspaper proprietors and journalists has been experiencing battle as a result of loggerhead among executives over who is the authentic head.
But the Secretary, Caretaker Electoral Committee of the chapel, Sodiq Ojuroungbe in a release issued in Abeokuta on Thursday, July 27, 2020, said the election would take place at the NUJ Secretariat, Iwe Irohin Press Centre, Oke-Ilewo, Abeokuta, between 9am and 2pm.

He added, “We hereby implore all our membes to be present at the election ground so that we use our franchise to usher new executive that will take over the affair of the chapel for the next few years.”
